Yes, the box is hiding just what you'd think, police say.

Transit Police report they are looking for a guy who exposed more of himself than he should have on an outbound Kingston Line train that had just left South Station around 8:45 p.m. on Nov. 19.

If Mr. You Know What in a Box looks familiar, contact detectives at 617-222-1050 or send an anonymous text to 873873.

CommonWealth Unbound reports the latest problem related to crumbling concrete ties on MBTA commuter lines out of South Station: Trains on the Kingston Line had speeds reduced from 70 to 30 m.p.h. because of "an increasing number of broken, cracked, and crumbling concrete ties that present a potential danger if they are not replaced or reinforced."

The MBTA has begun experimenting with a system that lets commuter-rail and ferry riders pay for parking by cell phone instead by rolling up all those dollar bills to stuff into those tiny slots at parking lots.

The new system, at parking lots along the Kingston line and at the Quincy and Hingham commuter-boat terminals, lets riders set up accounts and then dial a toll-free number to have the day's parking fee charged to their credit cards:

Upon creating a free pay by phone account, customers call the toll free number from their mobile phone, key in the location and parking numbers, and the parking fee is charged to their credit/debit card.
